Ahmedabad to celebrate Human Rights Day on Dec 10

On the occasion of Human Rights Day on December 10, the Movement for Secular Democracy, in association with People's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) will organise programmes to celebrate the 'stand for citizens', focusing on human rights declaration on UN Charter, 1948.

In Ahmedabad, the day has been celebrated every year for past 12 years. This year's celebration is an extension of Anna Hazare's visit to the city in May, said Prakash Shah, working president, PUCL.

"The need of the hour is to develop a united movement of people against anti-people policies of the governments and preserve the human rights at all costs," said Shah.

The celebrations will include discussions, drama, street plays and songs, and a candlelight procession. The programme will take place at Sardar Baug, nicknamed Anna Andolan Janpant after the activist visited the state. On December 15, Justice Santosh Hegde will deliver a lecture on "Corruption in our country and people's movement," at Shikshan Mahavidyalaya Bhavan, Gujarat Vidyapith, Ashram Road.
